After about a year of development, RSpec 2.0 has been officially released. This brings a ton of changes, but most notably, the "Spec" module has become "RSpec", there's better Rails 3 support, and the gems are now modular.
Continuing on last week's coverage of OmniAuth Les Hill and Paul Elliot, you should check out OmniSocial. It adds a bit of an authentication framework around OmniAuth and adds Twitter and Facebook authentication support to your application, while still giving you your favorite current_user method.
Xavier Shay posted a 4 minute screencast demonstrating how to setup Ruby 1.9.2 and Rails 3 on a Windows 2008 server with MS SQL Server 2008. If this environment sounds familiar to you, then it's probably worth a few minutes to check it out.
If you're a fan of learning by watching how others do it, then aRailsDemo.com may be just for you. The site contains articles detailing exactly how the site itself was built. And, since seemingly it's maintained by FlappyFaceMcGee, you know it's good.
Ruby Facets, in case you don't recall, is a collection of Ruby core extensions packaged into a fairly modular library. And, they've just recently released version 2.9. There's a ton of useful code in there, so instead of reinventing the wheel, you should make sure it's not already out there for you to use.
Hashery, which can be found in Ruby Facets, just had it's 1.3 release. With it, you get an OrderedHash, a CastingHash, a LinkedList, an OpenCascade, a Fuzzy Hash, and more. So, if Hashes are your thing, then Hashery is your new BFF.
As developers, putting together any sort of decent design is a daunting task. And, that's where the web-app-theme gem by Andrea Franz, et al., comes in. It is pre-packaged with a dozen or so themes and a Rails generator so that you can build attractive, usable interfaces for your application.
Jeremy McAnally's Magic Ruby is a free conference being held at Disney’s Contemporary Resort in Orlando, Florida. Sponsors foot the bill, so admission is free, but seating is limited. It's happening February 4-5, 2011, but the call for proposals is already open. So, if Florida in February sounds good to you, or maybe you just want to visit Envy Labs while you're here, start petitioning your employer, now. ;)
